Format: Audio CD
This is the second Warner box set that repackages Andras Schiff's 1995-99 solo recordings; like the companion "group" set András Schiff - Concertos and Chamber Works, it represents extremely good value, both in monetary and artistic terms.

CDs 1 & 2 hold Schiff's Haydn sonata recordings from 1998, and these were originally released as Haydn - Piano Sonatas; excellent performances of these beautiful and often overlooked works.

CD 3 is an interesting traversal of Handel's Suite 1, Brahms' Handel Variations, and Reger's Bach Variations. This was originally issued in 1995 as Handel/Brahms/Reger: Piano Works and has also been on a mid-price Warner "Elatus" release (which are, so I understand, "copy-protected" and thus probably best avoided).

CDs 4 & 5 contain various of Schumann's piano works and were originally released as Schumann:Davidsbundlertanze, Blumenstuck, Arabesque And Symphonic EtudeSchumann - Kreisleriana.

CD 6 is terrific and has Polkas from Smetana. This was originally on Smetana - Piano Works.

Highly recommended, as this box contains a good mixture of the well-known and relatively obscure and that's often good for one's ears!

I've been only impressed by Schiff's playing of Handel's suite no 1, which is amazing: the piano is treated like a hapsichord and it's stunning to hear the cascades of notes, the ornamentation, the improvisatory feeling, the fire with which the piece is played; this same fire is lacking regrettably in the other pieces.

Starting with Haydn, the same improvisatory spirit doesn't work very well here; we've got used over the centuries to a much more sober, cleaner approach, like Brendel's.

The Brahms variations and Reger's are OK, the latter musically difficult and the former technically demanding. Schumann is also well played, and the selection of pieces enable you to compare a late cycle, Gesaenge der Fruehe, with two early cycles, Nachtstuecke and Kreisleriana: the earlier works are much more inspired, whereas in his later years musical inspiration was elusive.

The Smetana polkas are elegant, lyrical, but they lack fire. That's the edge lacking in this compilation.

I will listen to his Handel suite from time to time though!
